    Hi

    A red light is showing on the truma unit. It normally comes on when the gas is empty but the gas is fine.
    I ran the van engine as its been stood for a while on site. I turned the electrics off before hand but forgot to turn the truma unit to off. The red light is now on.
    Have I damaged something?
    Any suggestions welcome.

    Cheers

    red light is normally a flame failure warning. could be a few things, but try cycling it on and off a few times to rule out an airlock in the gas supply

    If it's the same Truma as mine (Combi 4E/6E) a red light will come on if the 240v supply to it is interrupted. Switching it off then on again at the control panel resets it. If there's a fault the red light will be flashing. HTH

    red light

    You may have to leave off for a while before switching on again. May be 30minutes.
    check the instructions or try and get them online if you can.
